This transfer pattern is designed for students planning to transfer to a four-year degree program with a major in chemistry or in related fields. The transfer pattern provides all of the basic science, mathematics, and general studies transfer courses that are required during the first two years of a general four-year program. The general studies listed below should be coordinated with transfer requirements at the four-year institution and adjusted accordingly, when necessary.

This is a transfer program and is designed to enable students to transfer to a four-year college or university. Check with your advisor and the Student Success Center as soon as possible to ensure specific course transferability.

Successful completion of this program qualifies a student to apply for an Associate of Science degree in Arts and Sciences - Area of Concentration in Chemistry.
